Course content

A level Art and Design is a two year course. During the first year students will study for the AS level qualification and then take the A level components in the second year. The AS and A level components provide students with an environment in which to explore their work on both a practical and critical level. The work that is produced comprises a broad range of supporting studies (sketchbook/portfolio pages) and practical work (artistic outcomes such as; paintings, drawings, prints, 3D work and mixed media). Students are given opportunities to generate and develop ideas, research primary and contextual sources, record practical and written observations, experiment with media and processes, and refine ideas towards producing personal resolved outcome(s). Supporting studies such as sketchbook work will be evidenced throughout the working process and can take many forms, such as recorded research, written annotation and practical exploration and development.
